Ray, I consent to your content of estimation of a "should", but I cannot support the quality of suggestion for Susan's sake. She DOES accept science as a road of discovery, yet I don't know how you can suggest a "change" of modus operandi. Susan IS informing us of her most cherished stance, that of a non-believer. I would not dismiss that continual proclamation of her collection of phrases that she often uses to defend her confirmation of not-belief in any God or supernatural. I allow that personal challenge in her posts. She is not you; of that I am certain and convinced. Even her reprimands toward me are justified: Proof or nothing is a plausible repititious phraseology she MAY use to convey her commitment.
Susan, I definately accept your commitment to your personal status as an athiest, and I recognize your evident passion in doing so.
Please allow me the vantage point of personal opinion also. If I make no sense, then tell me so!!!
You should dissolve all discrimination of individuality and absorb all things into a harmonious oneness.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
